200g bread flour
20g superfine wholegrain flour
10g organic purple corn powder
30g raw sugar
2g instant dry yeast
pinch of vanillin powder, optional
40g natural yeast/sourdough, 100% hydration*
28g yudane dough^
115g low fat milk, cold
15g evaporated milk, cold
20g condensed milk, cold
25~30g water, cold to be added depending on dough condition
2g low sodium salt
30g unsalted butter, softened
some milk as milk wash before baking
about 3 to 4g butter as butter wash after baking
* 40g natural yeast can be replaced by 20g each of bread flour and water + 1/8 tsp instant dry yeast. Let the mixture stands for about 1 hour or till double in volume, before use. You can also keep the mixture in the fridge overnight and thaw it for 1 hour before use.
^ 28g yudane dough is prepared by combining 15g of bread flour with 14g of very hot or boiling water into a sticky dough. Wrap the yudane dough in cling wrap, cool down before chilling in the fridge overnight. Use a silicone spatula to scrape out the sticky yudane dough from the cling wrap.
1. Knead the dough following your preferred method.
For my method, you can refer to my recipe Yudane Milk Bread.
Knead the dough till reaching window pane stage.
Shape the dough into a ball, spray some water over, cover with a lid, and let it proof for about 60 minutes, or till double in size.

2. Invert the dough onto a floured work top, deflate the dough, and divide into 4 equal portions.
3. Shape the dough into 4 balls, cover with an inverted mixing bowl, and let them rest for about 15 minutes.
4. Take a dough ball, roll out into a flat oval shape in about 5mm thickness.
Flip over the dough sheet so the smoother side will be facing out after rolling up. Use a dough cutter to cut one end of the dough sheet into strands (cut to about 1/3 of the dough length).
Roll up the dough sheet starting from the un-cut end.
5. Arrange the shaped dough in a 20 cm square pan lined with parchment paper. Spray some water over, cover with a cloth, and let the shaped dough undergo 2nd proofing for about 40 minutes, or till the dough double in size.

6. Start to preheat the oven to 180℃ for 10 minutes. About 5 minutes before baking, brush a coat of milk over the dough.
5. Bake the shaped dough at middle rack of a preheated oven, at 180℃ for 5 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 170℃ and bake for 10 minutes. Turn off the oven, and let the buns bake for 5 further minutes.
6. Remove the bread rolls from the oven,
Brush a thin coat of melted butter over the hot crust.
Lift out the bread from the pan, and let them cool over a cooling rack.
Cut the bread rolls to your preferred length and size after cooling down.
Enjoy the sweet bread with a small chunk of cold butter. Yummy😋
